Fantastic dinner. High quality ingredients cooked delicately and perfectly presented. Particularly delicious were the Dorset crab with potato foam and the passion fruit souffle for desert. Professional staff and beautiful setting. Since it was dark when we arrived, we had the chance to visit the gardens the morning after: not to be missed.

From the moment we arrived to be greeted before reaching the entrance by smiling greeters in smart overcoats and hats, the promise of a memorable occasion began. The warmth and courtesy we were shown by all of the staff was exemplary. We loved the new restaurant with its glass walls that let the garden and the light in. The set lunch was of a very high quality and the notable bottle of Bordeaux all the better for being decanted. We much enjoyed the whole experience and plan to return in the summer when we can explore more of the garden and grounds.

Have now been three years running - did not fail to live up to expectations - fabulous English hotel where you can feel the atmosphere with log fires in each room. Stunning meal with wonderful extras, unobtrusive service. Can't wait to return!!

Exceptional hotel with superb food, service and attention to detail. You create a wonderful atmosphere, not locked on the past or stuffy but sharp, relevant today and thoroughly enjoyable. From making the booking with Georgia to Eduardo serviving our digestifs it was magical.

Very much enjoyed afternoon tea at Gravetye. If I was being hyper critical, the service was a little below that usually experienced - forgot to bring the requested lemon with the tea, forgot to bring the water (needed two reminders) and the wait between being seated and tea actually arriving was rather too long. That said, the sandwiches, scones and cakes were delicious.

As I've said in previous evaluations, my one quibble about value for money is the cost of wine. PLEASE include some cheaper bottles. It's possible to do so and to retain quality. Also I was surprised when I made the booking to be asked to pay a deposit of £30 per head. I understand why you do this but for a customer of over a decade with no history of not turning up I think some flexibility is called for. I'm pleased to say that when paying the bill yesterday we were assured a deposit would not be required in future.

Always look forward to coming back to Gravetye. wonderful relaxing atmosphere, staff are brilliant food and service the best. can never decide which we prefer the winter with open fires or the summer with the garden. so we just do both. Has to be our favourite hotel anywhere.

We always enjoy the warm, friendly welcome we receive from the moment we step out of the car, with attentive service throughout our visit. Our guests were very impressed with the stunning new dining room, and, as always, we very much enjoyed a delicious lunch.

I took my mum for her 70th as a special treat and it was really fantastic. My only criticism was the coffee and petit four was over priced, tiny coffee and tiny little mince pie for £6!

It was a lovely afternoon tea in a fabulous setting with very friendly service. Roaring fireplaces all around made for a great atmosphere, however a tad on the hot side. Peter & Family

I would have given five stars for "food and drink" on this occasion but the main course (at lunch) of Guinea Fowl wasn't quite up to the standard I've come to expect.
